Speed Transverse Front

Famous quotes containing the words speed and/or front:

    The terror of the atom age is not the violence of the new power but the speed of man’s adjustment to it—the speed of his acceptance.
    —E.B. (Elwyn Brooks)

    Every body we know surrounds himself with a fine house, fine books, conservatory, gardens, equipage, and all manner of toys, as screens to interpose between himself and his guest. Does it not seem as if man was of a very sly, elusive nature, and dreaded nothing so much as a full rencontre front to front with his fellow?
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
